traditional anniversary gift: wood
modern anniversary gift: silverware
Wow, five years together! What a beautiful milestone in a couple’s marriage. In fact, many consider this the first milestone of many (if you’re counting by five’s, that is).
By now, both bride and groom have gotten through the honeymoon stage, and they’ve settled into a happy cadence of married bliss. Sparks still fly but there’s also a deeper level of comfort and contentment. This in itself is cause for celebration—whether with an intimate date night or with a full-out party! Either way, it’s time to spotlight this extra-special anniversary.
The gemstone for a 5th wedding anniversary is sapphire, and the traditional gift is wood. No wonder. It’s strong and long lasting, representing the power of a solid marriage bond. There are easily so many different ways to interpret this theme, so take your pick: formal or fun. The couple is sure to love either one!
